DIY: Mason Jars and Paper Straws

Glitter N Glue Mason Jar and Striped Straw DIY This past weekend my friend Kelly (of KellyGolightly.com) hosted a pool party at her new Palm Springs pad. A few weeks ago while shopping I stumbled upon cute mason jar cup set (Instagram pic here) and thought they would be a great DIY and a fun hostess gift for Kelly’s party. The jars would be super handing for entertaining and since Kelly was the first to comment on my picture, I knew she’d just love them!
